Memorial Day is the annual national holiday on the last Monday of May where we remember and honor military personnel. These are the men and women who died in the service of their country, particularly in battle or from wounds sustained in combat. Unlike Veterans Day, Memorial Day is not a comprehensive remembrance of those who have served in the armed forces. Memorial Day first got its name in 1971. Until then, it was known as "Decoration Day," which was first celebrated a year after the end of the Civil War. That American conflict claimed more lives than any other in U.S. history and required the establishment of the first national cemeteries.
Even though many people will visit cemeteries, public memorials or parades to honor those lost in battle, Memorial Day can be an appropriate time to send a personalized gift to the family or friends of a fallen soldier.
In most cases, a gift on Memorial Day will be unexpected, which will make any personalized gesture of appreciation that much more special. Personalized flags for the garden or monogrammed photo albums or frames are a few gift suggestions that will acknowledge those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect the freedoms we enjoy today.
Many Americans also use Memorial Day to celebrate the start of summer at the pool, the beach, on the golf course or in backyard barbecues. This makes monogrammed grill and glassware, embroidered beach towels, tote bags, and personalized t-shirts the perfect gifts to mark the occasion that pay tribute to our fallen heroes who fought valiantly to defend the American pleasures and pastimes that we treasure on Memorial Day.
You can even personalize golf balls or your favorite duffle bag. Fully Promoted will help you decide on the perfect personalized gesture of appreciation.
